I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

East Midland Tiger at Bretonside

It would appear from this view taken at Bretonside in Plymouth that the East Midland Leyland Tiger had travelled a lot further than the two Volvos alonside it and in summer there was always a nice mix of local traffic and more exotic coaches from places like Barnsley and Wigan. Catch the light right and it was good for photography too but in later years as elsewhere one was reluctant to walk on the parking area although I never heard anyone say anything. They are a bit more laid-back in the west Country. No.37 was one of a pair of with Duple bodywork.
